I'm accredited as a Master Executive Coach by the Association for Coaching (AC) - which means I’m professionally accredited at the highest level as a Coach, and that I’m committed to the highest coaching standards and ethics, regular supervision, and continuous professional and personal development. I’m also one of the most experienced Accreditation Assessors for the AC.
I have a university degree, and am professionally qualified in Human Resources (HR), Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy, as well as Coaching.
I’ve been a coach since 2002 and in that time I’ve worked with hundreds of people across diverse functions and at all levels; in the public, private and voluntary sectors, SMEs and start-ups; with people working for others and for themselves; people both from the UK and other countries (Argentina, Australia, Bosnia Herzegovina, Canada, Dubai, France, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Rumania, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, USA). I’m at ease working with different time zones and with different cultural backgrounds.
At the start of my coaching career I worked with Fiona Harrold ('the country's top coach' - The Independent), and became the lead career coach on Fiona's team, including writing Reinvent Your Career - 7 Steps to the Job You Love, published by Hodder Mobius.
Before 2002 I had successful careers in HR and Customer Service / Operational Management, working at senior level in the UK and Australia, in Banking, IT, the NHS and the BBC. In each, I ‘worked my way up’ and built a reputation for getting things done and making a positive difference.
I'm passionate about good customer service and only work with a small number of clients at one time to enable me to give you my best attention and commitment.
